. no. 4, ordinance amending the san francisco business and tax regulation code article 12a by amending section 906.5 to priest the payroll expense tax exclusion for small business net new payroll for years 2012 through 2015 from terminating in event that the voters of the city and county of san francisco pass a gross receipts tax. >> thank you victor. we have legislationoff aide to supervisor farrell, catheryn stephanie, welcome. >> good morning, supervisors, cathery stephanie, lengthiest aide to supervisor farrell. what have you before you is clean-up legislationings that follows our payroll tax exclusion legislation that was drafted before the gross receipts ballot language was finalized and submitted. so it was originally drafted and legislation will actually terminate upon passage of the gross receipts tax prior to the end of 2012. of course that is assuming that proposition e does pass on november 6th. this legislation before you amends it, so it no it longer terminates november 6th and allows the exemption to remain in effect for tax years 2012-2015. if the gross receipts tax
has paid much attention. but unless nothing is done before january 1st, we are going to see taxes rise on most people because that's the end of the payroll tax cut that president obama and congress agreed to. that also means that the end of the bush tax cuts, not only for people over $250,000 of income, but also everybody else who were to some extent, their taxes were also reduced by the bush tax cut. the alternative minimum tax, that also would kick in. there's no alternative to the alternative minimum tax on the table. so you have the typical family after january 1st seeing a tax hike in the range of $1500 to $3500 for the year 2013. now, i expect congress is going to do something, if it doesn't act before january 1st, it's probably going to act sometime in january and then make what they do retroactive to january 1st. >> all right. looking at the long-term and the short-term. we're going to know what those jobs numbers are tomorrow. great to see you, as always. thank you. >> thanks, thomas. >> so just to point out again, we are awaiting for live remarks from the president as he dise
to nothiprognosticati melber, neera tanden, kate ton dawson. let's start with the tax plan. if there is something i believe mitt romney is invested in doing, it is the tax plan. he claims it is revenue neutral. >> you have to claim certain things. this goes for both sides. there is this thing called business cycle. this is what we study. in a free market economy, recessions and recoveries, upswings and down swings are part and parcel of the world we live in. when you look at how budgets are proposed, off of the congressional budget office projection. they are not that realistic. in 2014, 2015, 2016, they are projected real gdp growth of 4.4%. sounds pretty good. how realistic is it? if you take a look at reality, what's happened since the beginning of the century? gdp has grown at 1.7% and we know we are in a pretty sluggish economy. there is a huge disconnect between what's proposed and what's going on outside this window? >> that's the big deal. the claim is, i'm going to go in and cut taxes. don't worry, cutting taxes is going to be stimulative. we are going to end up with way more jobs and ther
wall on taxes, and christie was put on national television and christie quickly realized he doesn't want to be making excuses for mitt romney not releasing his taxes. it's going to go over horribly in new jersey. doesn't look good, period. it was christie much all people who said, you know what, mitt romney should release his taxes. we've seen this a few times from christie. his brand is dependent on being seen as a bipartisan guy. you can't do anything in this situation except working cooperatively and praising president obama if you're going to be a bipartisan guy. >> let me go to another point here. while i'm talking about romney, steve, he very clearly said that fema -- last year he said fema could be privatized or handled by the states. today he wouldn't even answer questions about it. "the new york times" editorial board slammed romney for his position on fema today writing disaster coordination is one of the most vital functions of big government, which is why mitt romney wants to eliminate it. does mr. romney really believe financially strapped states would do a better job

. >> you're illegally selling these drugs. >> need a fake tax return? how about a real kidney? >> it's hard to believe that you would advertise your kidney on craigslist. >> chances are you found something on one of those websites. but i bet it wasn't a human body part. or a possible hit man either. >> it seems like you're advertising a business that could kill people. >> what's it really going on online? wait till you see what our hidden cameras find. >> you just did something illegal. >> this is a counterfeit ticket. >> i'm lester holt and this is date line. chris hansen is in the wild wild web. >>> what you're looking at is someone suggesting on hidden camera he's a hit man. >> walking around. >> and i'm playing along as a potential client. >> i got a problem with a guy. >> okay. >> i got to take care of it. >> okay. >> it feels like a scene from a movie. >> what are the options? >> what's going to happen to him? >> well, what can you do? >> i can do anything. >> but he's no actor and he's telling me what he's willing to do to a potential victim. >> he can disappear or get hurt, hospital
class. says he'd cut taxes for everybody. and ask something from nobody. but the problem is we've heard those promises before. >> mitt romney meantime has added an important endorsement here in the battleground state of iowa. the "des moines register" as of last night has chosen romney because they say this is all about the economy. keep in mind, they endorsed the president four years ago, then-senator four years ago. this marks the first time in 40 years that the newspaper has backed a republican in the presidential election here. just on friday, i spoke with carol hunter. she is the senior news director of the paper. she very much so agreed with me. iowa up for grabs. >> it's pretty much like ohio in that it's very much a toss-up state. all the polls are showing it pretty much dead even. there's a rasmussen report out that has them both at 48%. the rolling averages are all within the margin of error. it's just going to be close, close, close, right down to the wire. and how precious those six electoral votes are just shows how close the entire national campaign is. >> mitt romney spen
was that he favors a progressive tax policy, taxing those at the very highest rungs of income a little more to provide a little more help to those on the bottom rungs. "the des moines register" has now abandoned that as a reason for choosing a president. the editorial board has abandoned it in favor of this lie. there is not a lot of difference between the two candidates' short-term economic plans. four years ago, one of the biggest reasons "the des moines register" gave for endorsing president obama was expanding health insurance coverage to more americans will lessen the threat that illness will bring financial ruin. four years later, health insurance is not mentioned in their editorial endorsing the man who promises to repeal the obama expansion of health insurance that "the des moines register" advocated. another important reason cited four years ago in endorsing president obama was the supremely important reason of supreme court justices. obama promises to appoint justices with an expansive view of constitutional rights and equal justice. mccain's appointments more likely would continu
federal taxes to accommodate that cut. the states would then have to raise taxes in order to pay for the replacements for what fema used to do. taxation on the average homeowner or individual -- >> cut taxes so the localities have to raise taxes. >> that's right. >> any way the tax is going to go down. the other scenario, say the states try to replicate what fema does, that's extremely inefficient because what fema can do is keep a lot of resources in place to target wherever the disaster goes. if every state has to act like sandy is going to hit them every time. >> right. >> that's fantastically inefficient and someone like romney ought to know that of all people. >> a lot is give money to states. there's a level of the game here. >> that is what they do. the big obviously the cops and e ems and firefighters are out there, not federal employees for the most part. >> that's right. >> and those are local workers who like are out there, you know, doing the work first. >> ezra, we know if the sequesters go into place, fema loses $878 million, that's a lot of money although we don't
of taxes. everybody's been talking about these swing states as if the tail can wag the dog. somehow if you win the swing states, you affect the whole rest of the country in doing so, when that's the residue. but if you spend all your advertising money and all your grassroots, all your social media, and you focus it all on ohio, that doesn't help you win in pennsylvania. it doesn't help you in minnesota or michigan. i'm wondering whether they got the thing wrong, possibly, the obama people, by putting all their faith in winning those seven states, or most of them. what do you think? >> i think that because of the electoral college, elections, presidential elections have to focus on swing states and have to focus on these emerging purple states, because as it turns out, the elections sometimes do hinge on them. this election does seem to hinge on these particular swing states. the reason why the polling is so confusing, chris, is because sometimes national polls don't take into effect the fact that we have an electoral college, don't take into effect that some of these swing states will be s
budget and tax plan. he's refused to say if he supports the lily ledbetter fair pay act for women. he's refused to say if he would enter one-on-one nuclear talks with the iranians. he's refused to answer questions relating to richard mourdock's rape comment. and finally, mitt romney has actually refused to go on nickelodeon and answer questions from children. now, if mitt romney can't answer questions from 5-year-old kids, how do you think that's going to play with the national press corps? and isn't it interesting that fox news can't even get an interview with mitt romney right now? for more, let's turn to congresswoman debbie wasserman schultz of florida. she's a chairwoman of the democratic national committee. chairwoman, good to have you with us tonight. it's a very strange strategy, being played out by mitt romney. what do you make of it? >> well, i think what this boils down to is a matter of who do you trust? i mean, we know that there is a very stark contrast and a clear choice in terms of the two directions that we could go. but, i mean, time and again now, we have examples o
this as their friends and encourage them and support them, and by the way, we can't tax them to death. i was with a business person in st. louis, four employees in the electronics business. he said that he and his son calculated how much money they send to the government every year out of their business and he put down how much for the federal income tax and the federal payroll tax and the state income tax and real estate tax and gasoline tax. and it was over half of what they made. and he said, think about this. you start a business, your chance of success is not even as good as 50-50. most small businesses won't make it so it's a risky thing to do. then if you're successful the government wants more than half of what you make and so a lot of people decide not to build businesses. today we are at the lowest level of new business start ups in 30 years. i want to change this dynamic and make business recognize they have a friend in washington, not a foe. and i believe if we do that, we do those five things and get those five done we are going to create 12 million new jobs and more take ho
, obama's first term delivered an ambitious domestic agenda, with tax, spending, health care, and several rights policies that benefited black americans more than recent administrations in either party. just usually without making a sound. >> uh-huh. >> now, the narrative that i've been hearing for some time is that this president has been silent on the issues of race, and actually has not been helpful to african-americans. you say the exact opposite. >> it is a narrative that's out there and there are some very respected voices in african-american sbel chul circles who have raised that which part of what i was doing is making that argument and looking at the policy. we were speaking about this before just coming on air. if you look, for example, at the people in the lowest fifth of income in this country, barack obama's tax policies and stimulative policies have cut their taxes more than any other administration in 30 years. and if you then look at that in the context of african-american communities for a range of reasons are more -- >> the lower fifth. >> -- moreover represented in that
in 2016. i think it would be more and worse than that. the president's plan is to raise taxings. that's how he will conduct economic policy. you raise taxes on a weak economy and you weaken the economy even more and therefore you produce less revenue. >> gretchen: that is just a projectio and if he would get power in congress you don't know what other policiless would come in place. hard to predict. >> you don't know how much taxings he would raise on the so-call would rich. what have we got after four years of runnning up the debt from 6 trillion to cane.2 trillion >> eric: unemployment rate close to 8 percent x. economy growing less than two percent a year and that is five and half trillion in extra debt. these are not happy times for america's finances. >> gretchen: it is always happier for us when you top by and happier on the fox business network. you need to show teeth look at your >> okay. british teeth, are you crazy in >> eric: one state ready to give illegal immigrants tuition. and who is paying for it? the legall students. is that fair? >> gretchen: big winners in country m
's wild inflation of the g.o.p. tax plan. >> $500 trillion tax cut to 120,000 families. >> followed by monday's use of a dollar figure never before heard in annals of economics. >> additional $1-point-trillion dollars in tax cuts. >> in between those came identity crisis involving the virginia senate candidate tim kaine. >> i am a big tom kaine fan. a big tom kaine fan. >> biden boyd has been the beneficiary of a great personality. when he commits a gaffe, often times it's just dismissed as well, it's just joe. whereas a lot of republican candidates don't get that flak. >> serious bidenologists know all biden gaffes are not equal. they distinguish between the epic hot mic moment. and those instances where it remains unclear whether he misspoke at all. >> going to put y'all back in chains. >> i think vice president very well knows that sometimes the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. >> i always say what i mean. >> defenders acknowledge the gary louse vice president is given to unscripted moments but contend the authenticity appeals to ordinary americans. in places lik
of office, they tried their ideas. we tried giving big tax cuts to the wealthiest americans. we tried giving insurance companies and wall street a free rein to do whatever they play. what we got is falling incomes, record deficits, slowest job growth in 50 years and an economic crisis that we're still cleaning our way out of. so -- so we know what works and we know what doesn't. and governor romney now is a very talented salesman. so in this campaign, he is trying as hard as he can to repackage the same old ideas that didn't work and offer them up as change. he is saying he is the candidate of change, lo and behold. now here is the thing, though. we know what change looks like. and what governor romney is offering ain't it. giving more power to the biggest banks, that's not change. another $5 trillion tax cut to the wealthiest americans, that's not change. refusing to answer details about your policies until after the election, that's definitely not change. we've heard that from politicians before. >> again, a glimpse of the campaign speech the president has been giving to supporters all day
't change. another $5 trillion tax cut to favor wealthy isn't change. >> the punches are still flying because the president knows the race is far from over. especially since he is still waiting for friday's october jobs report. one of the last unknowns about the race. today, weekly applications for unemployment benefits dropped to a seasonally adjusted $363,000. level consistent modest, but not robust hiring. mixed news as well for the president in the latest fox news poll. which shows that approval of the handling of the economy among likely voters has risen ten points compared to two years ago. yet, when asked who they trust to do a better job on the economy, the president gets just 43% while romney is at 52%. >> it is good to be back in green bay, wisconsin. >> the president is also playing defense with his itinerary in the final stretch. three stops in wisconsin, a state he wanted to lock down long ago. plus two stops in iowa and six cities in ohio. where he hopes victories will provide a midwestern firewall. the president may be less optimistic in the south where he is making onl
and little else, 75% saying, you know what, economic issues like jobs, fiscal issues like taxes those are the top issues we're going to vote on. the president if you look at those numbers, the president is underwater on those issues, 47-52%. romney leads him 50-46% in a close race. does that make the difference? >> i believe it does. i think the people vote their pocketbooks. i think they are absolutely distress order that front in terms of what comes next with regard to their prosz peculiarities for job at home in their hometown. so again, i say, the revenge thing, it's a side track. forget it and move back to what people are really focused on which is jobs, economy, debt. >> gregg: you convinced me. i'm over the revenge thing. [ laughter ] >> gregg: moosts me to independents where you look at just about any poll and romney seems to lead anywhere among between independents among 5-10%. so what about that factor, independents? >> yeah, i think overwhelmingly they will break toward romney. i think that is the history of these things. i know in my races as for congress or governorship y
to ask the wealthiest americans to go back to the tax rates they paid when bill clinton was in office. because as long as i'm president, i will never turn medicare into a voucher just to pay for another millionaire's tax cuts. i will never allow this nation to be plunged into another battle over health care reform just so insurance companies can jump back into the driver's seat. i will never allow politicians in washington to control health care choices that women should be making for themselves. so, wisconsin, we know what change is. we know what the future requires. we don't need a big government agenda or a small government agenda. we need a middle class agenda that rewards hard work and responsibility. we don't need a partisan agenda. we need a commonsense agenda that says when we educate a poor child, we'll all be better off. that says when we fund the research of a young scientist, her new discovery will benefit every american. we need a vision that says we don't just look out for ourselves. we look out for one another. we look out for future generations, and we meet those oblig

, though, this 25 advanced versus 10 day of? >> there's still lots of ways to sift that date tax alex. and one of the things that both campaigns are trying to do is car or separate, if you will, high pro pencesy voters from low propensity voters. both campaigns have a scale. romney campaign is 0 to 4. if you were al sharpton you would be 0, ann romney a 4. obama campaign has a 1 to 5. rush limbaugh would be 1, michelle obama would be 5. if you lay these over in ohio, what the republicans believe the obama campaign has done is banked a lot of their high propensity vote who were going to show up anyway. what they're trying to do is call the low propensity voters in ohio and turn out a hire percentage of their high propensity voters on election day. the obama campaign acknowledges some of the folks banking now are probably closer to the high propensity scale. they do believe there'll be enough of a firewall particularly in northern ohio to get that state across the finish line. >> shira, there's a new tampa bay times, bay news, "miami herald" poll mitt romney leading by 6 points. however
